Teaching Logic Using Games

It's Homecoming Week at Brookings HS this week.  As many of you know, Homecoming Week has an interesting way of making kids forget how to focus, especially on Friday afternoon.

For our geometry classes, we had students play a variety of logic puzzles and games.  Students could choose from three levels of sudoku, two levels of logic puzzles, the iPad app Chocolate Fix, and the board game Rush Hour.

Even though students thought they were given a day off, they were really developing their deductive reasoning skills and fully using conditional statements.

**Special thanks to Ryan Hofer, Horace Mann, and Donors Choose for providing funding to purchase the Rush Hour games.  The kids really gravitated to the hands-on board games!
